acp016 blake market - northern wood
Blake Market (aka Black Market, Zark Behida, Blakkar Noir) re-emerges with an album of utterly up-front, forward-looking hard drum n'bass.
Based on a far-flung concept inspired by the natural grandeur of the Boreal Forests of his homeland, this release is certain to please lovers of both old-school techstep and drill n' bass alike (to the exclusion of pretty much
everybody else! - ed). Seriously though, it's well good.
Pounding, splintered odd-meter breakbeats and thoroughly Canadian nature samples are paired with grizzly basslines and suspicious synths in this off-kilter winner.
